  • May graduates apply by the first Friday in March.

Awarding of Degrees

The graduation ceremony is held once a year at the end of the spring semester. Students who complete requirements for the associate's degree in the Summer, Fall or Spring semesters and have been approved will be invited to participate in the ceremony.
